Camellia Rusticana Botanyuki

winter_rose(NE Vic Aus z5)November 3, 2004

I bought this camellia in Australia because it is Japanese and in a yellow shade. I like the yellow camellias. I have two camellias, mostly because it is hot and the room needed for them. I ran a search on it but didn't find anything under Botanyuki on the website. It is different to the Japonica and sasanqua, that is what I am assuming. Does anyone know anything about them?

Camellia rusticana (C. japonica subsp. rusticana). Snow Camellia, from Hondo. Flowers said to open flat, have shorter stamens than C. japonica. FLORA, THE GARDENER'S BIBLE (Global Book Publishing, 2003) has a large photo of 'Botanyuki' on page 309.

Thank you for your reply. I have attempted to borrow the book twice, but must have had a slow connection. Thanks again.

My camellia is flowering again, the flowers are small but it had a hard life last year. We have moved it into lovely soil with shade from a buddliea that has grown up during the year. It is unusual that is for sure.
